DEFINITION: Flow routing is a network routing technology that takes variations in the flow of data into account to increase routing efficiency. The increased efficiency helps avoid excessive latency and jitter for streaming data, such as VoIP (voice over IP) or video. Rather than routing individual packets, a flow router observes and evaluates flows to gather statistics, including source, destination, amount  …

This evaluation permits the router to prioritize traffic, deliver on quality of service (QoS) requirements, and keep flows from consuming more than some pre-allotted portion of network resources. A flow router evaluates traffic flows in real time, based on an ID, route, time of receipt and rate of flow, to keep streaming traffic moving as quickly as possible. By contrast, conventional (Layer 3) IP routing does not differentiate between packets. Conventional routing uses …
